about

I am an Assistant Professor of Physics at the University of California, Davis.

My research focuses on theoretical and computational astrophysics and cosmology, in particular:

  • cosmological structure formation
  • galaxy formation
  • near-field cosmology
  • galactic archaeology
  • the Milky Way and the Local Group
  • dwarf galaxies
  • galaxy groups and clusters
  • cosmological simulations
  • computational techniques

I also emphasize close connections to observational data.
